As far as gaming goes, I actually feel like a burden has been lifted off of my shoulders. At last month's Enfilade! convention I sold off a lot of figures - most of my WHFB Empire foot, all of my Napoleonic Russians and Prussians, all of the Old Glory Biblicals, and all of the WW1 French and Germans. I also made private sales of some of my Napoleonic British (Perry Coldstream Guards and Household cav, and OG 71st Highlanders), some of the French (all of the OG infantry and Front Rank Dutch Lancers and Chasseurs a Cheval) and also a fair number of my Ancients collection (all of the OG and 1st Corps Hoplites; the OG Gallic infantry, Gallic and Scythian cav, A&A Companion cav, and Spanish Scutarii). I had sold off a plastic EIR army as well as some Medieval and Dark Age cav at last year's con. As you may see, I've hyperlinked to images of the figures for my own future reference/regrets :). The pricing was low, but since everything was sold to folks in the local community I am quite content. So far, I have kept all of my Trojan War stuff, all of the Samurai and Choson Koreans, the Napoleonic Victrix and most of the Perry, most of the Foundry Macedonians (like these Hypaspists), all of the Medievals and Dark Age Normans and Saxons, as well as the F&IW, Meiji/RJW Japanese, Gladiator and WW2 stuff. I now feel more focused and may even start hosting some games again.
